When people talk about Italy, they might mention the art, fashion, and the wonderful food, but little do they know that the land of Pizza also has waves! They may take time and a bit of patience to find, but when you do, the waves can be sweet! Our friends of Onde Nostre have been chasing these waves for years, and recently started documenting their travels with the 2010 release of their self-titled film, Onde Nostre (Our Waves), starring upcoming Italian surf talent Alessandro Ponzenelli.
With the success of their first release, Luca Merli and Matteo Ferrarri have started work on their second full length surf flick, due out in 2013. Until then, the Onde Nostre crew is keeping busy - traveling, surfing, and filming short vignettes, loosely titled "Ritratti di Surf". These "Surf Portraits" follow the adventures of fellow Italian artists & surfers, so we were very excited to receive an invitation to film our own surf portrait in Sardinia with the Onde Nostre crew!
|Can't describe the excitement of being reunited with my favorite italian Seeababes Natalia aka Gise and Betta aka Franco. We were so hyped to be together for this trip!!|
|It's an overnight ferry ride, but who needs a bed?? We crashed out in true surf-bum style.|
|Straight off the boat and right into waves, "Nelly" gets some tip time while Filipo Maffei scores some sweet water shots|
|Currently the head stylist at Vanity Fair Italy, the amazingly gipsy chic Elisabetta Dal Bello stops for a quick portrait in her San O suit. You can check out her beautiful line of hangbags here.|
|Lots of surf checks on this trip. We got waves, but not always...|
